What does the word hustler means?

A Hustler is someone who puts it all out there, busts their butt to make it and succeed in whatever creative endeavor they are trying to do. The word has been reclaimed from the nefarious activities "hustling" used to be associated with and is now a word of merit and value because it belies a person who is trying every possible road and connection to make their dreams come true. A WordHustler is a writer who is smart enough to figure out that to get all of their work out there, they have to get a little help finding places to send it and ways to keep track of all of their submissions. Luckily, WordHustlers the world over are helped by a website called, well, www.WordHustler.com. There are many writers in the world, but the smart ones are WordHustlers.
